THE ANSWERING SYSTEM WON'T RECORD MESSAGES,ALL MESSAGES GOES INTO POOVIDERS VOICE MAILE, AS IF MY PHONE IS BUSSEY?????? I CHECKED AND RECORD TIME IS NOT SET TO ANNOUNCE ONLY ANS ALL MESSAGES HAVE BEEN...


This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

When I receive a call and am not at home, the operator says I am not available instead of going to the answering machine. I am getting no messages.


Sounds like you have voicemail from your service provider and it might need to be activated before allowing messages to be recorded . If you do have voicemail on your number and it is set to answer after 3 rings and your answer machine is set to answer after 4 rings, then the caller will never get to your answer machine. Voicemail is often automatically added by service providers, especially if you have recently changed service providers or your service provider has upgraded their telephone switch equipment. I suggest you call your service provider's customer service number and ask them if your telephone line has voicemail and if you don't want to use it, have them disable it. If the service provider says you do not have voicemail then report the problem as a trouble on your telephone line.

Answering machine is not answering the phone calls. Have ringer set for 4 rings but the machine never picks up. was working fine until our power was off one day


If your phone rings normally and your can make and receive calls, the line is OK, please check if answering option is on, typically a botton marked ANS or similar with an indicator or a display showing that it's on.

Does not wait for the 4th ring; sends call to verizon voice mail box after the second ring


Sounds like your service provider(Verizon) has your phone line setup to forward to voicemail on no answer after 2 rings. Call your service provider's customer service number and request that the number of rings for forward no answer be increased to at least 5, then your answer machine can receive and answer your calls after 4 rings but if your line is busy callers can leave a message with your Verizon voicemail service. If you don't want Verizon voicemail to answer any of your calls, you could have them disable the voicemail service. When you call the service provider have a recent bill ready because they may request your account number before they will make any changes.

Messagebank provides a personal answering service if your phone line is busy or you can't get to the phone. You don't need extra equipment like answering machines, and you also get greater flexibility on call waiting- if you don't want to interrupt your call, let messagebank take your message. Let me know if this answers your question. Master FixYa: saailer@att.net

Fix phone line


It sounds to me like the phone line coming into your home has a short on it so when someone calls your phone it asts as you have answered it. Report the line trouble to your local phone provider as "RNA" (ring no answer) normal phone trouble ticket terms.

This is the time that love cannot help with. Buy yourself a new home phone where the massages will pile up. erase all massages on your mobile phone. It is time to buy a cell phone which will record all masseges that you've received.

Telephone connection problem with DSL


unplug everthing from all jacks in the house. call your # a couple of times. if the line rings, plug everything in 1 at a time, but call again after each hook up. if the line goes dead or is busy, that phone you just plugged in is the problem. [ a short in the phone, computer, answer machine, or any piece of equipment plugged into the phone line.] if the line is busy when everything is unplugged, call your phone company. there maybe a problem with your inside wire.there also maybe a box [called a nid] inside your basment/garage or on the side of your house, where you can plug your phone directly in, bypassing all the jacks in your house
hope this helps.

GE Telephone answering machine will not work


I'm assuming this is a digital recorder and does not use a tape. Any chance the memory is full and you need to erase messages to free up space for new recordings?
